Nephi’s Quotations of Isaiah

Mercy for Israel

2 Nephi 24:1-3

Amid God’s anger, Israel will receive mercy and deliverance.

For the Lord will have mercy on Jacob,
and will yet choose Israel,
and set them in their own land;
and the strangers shall be joined with them,
and they shall cleave to the house of Jacob.

And the people shall take them
and bring them to their place;
yea, from far unto the ends of the earth;
and they shall return to their lands of promise.

And the house of Israel shall possess them,
and the land of the Lord
shall be for servants and handmaids;
and they shall take them captives
unto whom they were captives;
and they shall rule over their oppressors.

And it shall come to pass in that day
that the Lord shall give thee rest,
from thy sorrow, and from thy fear,
and from the hard bondage
wherein thou wast made to serve.
